Flashback-

Keira took a deep breath, then giggled. It was a strange sound. It was easy. It felt good.

Locke wrapped his arms around her, pulling her closer. She gazed into his eyes.

“I feel…different.” he muttered.

“What? Like how? What’s wrong?” she asked, concerned.

“No, nothings wrong. I think it’s…love.” he said softly.

She felt strange then, she felt like jumping up and down, like her chest was inflating. The corners of her lip turned up into a smile involuntarily.

“I love you…” she proclaimed. His eyes lit up, knowing the feeling was mutual.

He pulled her even closer, and pressed his lips to hers. When he pulled away she giggled, and he raised an eyebrow questioningly.

“It’s feels different. In a good way.” she said.

He pulled her close again, and once more pressed his sweet lips to hers.

-----------------------------

Keira sat in the only chair in the room. Before her stood the seven deadly sins.

Anger, the leader as always, took a step forward.

“You have to leave him,” she said, with that icy cold voice that frightened Keira.

“No!” she said, a reflex.

“Keira! You’re the key! If you stay with him hell will open. And everyone will die. Even Locke. Are you so selfish that you would kill the whole world, including the man you love?” Envy spat out, her green eyes fuming.

She shook her head. She had heard the stories, of course. The stories of the day hell would open, because of two lovers. Every story ended with judgement day, the end of the world.

“It’s true?” she asked in disbelief.

Pride nodded once. Keira started to shake.

“So…we are the lovers responsible for the end of the world?” she began to cry.

“Yes,” Anger hissed. “You are banned from seeing Locke again. Hell has been closed. Sinners will stay in the blackness. You are saving them from a lot of pain, as well.”

Keira didn’t hear everything Anger said.

“I can’t say goodbye?” she cried.

All seven sins shook their heads.

Keira nodded. She understood.

“Come with us!” All seven sins commanded at once.

Keira followed them into the light, wishing she had some momentum of Locke. Tears rolled off her cheeks and onto the floor. She stopped before entering the light, and looked over her shoulder.

“I love you…” she whispered, pained. Then she walked into the light, the light that was too bright to be a good thing.

Keira saved the world, and Locke that day, but it was an act unknown of by humanity. And more painful to Keira, Locke would never know that she had given up her heart for him, to save him.

Present day-

Once Keira had stopped crying, she began to talk.

“There is a lot to say. I don’t know where to start.”

“Start with you.” Carlisle said. Jasper sifted in his seat, obviously in pain, but curiosity got the better of him and he stayed where he was.

“I used to be human. A long time ago. I…I think I had a brother.” She rubbed her head, trying to remember.

“My human life, was uneventful. One day I was out on the farm when a voice called my name. It was more than one voice, but they spoke as one. I was just a foolish child, so I followed the voice.

“That was the day I met the Sins. They explained that I was the key. The key to opening hell. The proper hell, with fire. I don’t understand all the details.”

Nobody spoke. Keira face lightened up a bit.

“Then I met Locke…” her expression was replaced by pain again.

“He kept hell closed. The lock on the gates. The first gates needed no key. They wanted to call me Key, but I refused. I wanted to keep my human name…some reminder.”

“It was rare anyone was evil enough to deserve to go through the second gates. There was nothing for either of us to do…so we became friends. Not long after we fell in love.”

She stopped and winced. I small gasp of pain escaped her lips as she doubled over. She took a few deep breaths, then sat up again.

“We were banned from each other. It was to dangerous…” she let tears roll freely down her cheeks. “I never got to say goodbye. One day I was just gone. I don’t know what horrible stories the Sins conducted.”

“I think it’s part of why he was willing to die for you. He saw you and Edward had a chance, and he wanted to fight for it.” she said. “He never blamed me. Not once. He was so forgiving, but he shouldn’t have been.”

I could feel tears bubbling up behind my eyes. There was so much love everywhere…dying, not getting a chance to bloom. I moved closer to Edward, clinging desperately to him. Guilt washed over me again.

Guilt is a horrible thing. But pain on top of guilt is…unimaginable. I wonder would Locke ever know just how much Keira really loved him.
